889 How do I connect Thunderbolt 3 computers to Sonnet Echo Express Expansion Chassis? What performance increase can I expect?Nov-24-17
There are two ways to connect Thunderbolt 3 computers to Sonnet Thunderbolt 2 products.

1) Using Apple Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt Adapter

The Apple Adapter will allow you to connect a Thunderbolt 3 Mac to any Sonnet self-powered Thunderbolt or Thunderbolt 2 device, at about the same performance. (The Apple adapter also works with some Thunderbolt 3 PCs, but the compatibility results vary.)

2) Using Sonnet Thunderbolt 3 Upgrade Card for Sonnet Echo Express Expansion chassis.

•Echo Express SEL or SE I Thunderbolt II Expansion Chassis with Sonnet Thunderbolt 3 Upgrade Card becomes equivalent to an Echo Express SEL or SE I Thunderbolt III Edition, respectively, like this:
PCIe 3.0 slot--Sonnet Thunderbolt 3 Card--Thunderbolt 3 Cable--Thunderbolt 3 computer
Maximum performance will be from 30% more (with a PCIe 2.0 card) to twice as fast (with a PCIe 3.0 card) compared with Thunderbolt 2 (1350MB/s-->2700MB/s).

•Echo Express SE II, III-D or III-R Thunderbolt 2 PCIe Expansion Chassis upgraded with a Sonnet Thunderbolt 3 Upgrade Card become this:
PCIe 2.0 slots--PCIe 2.0 Bridge--Sonnet Thunderbolt 3 Card--Thunderbolt 3 Cable--Thunderbolt 3 computer
Maximum performance will be 30% more compared with the Thunderbolt 2 Card (1350MB/s-->1750MB/s).

•Echo Express III-D or III-R Thunderbolt 3 Editions are this:
PCIe 3.0 slots--PCIe 3.0 Bridge--Sonnet Thunderbolt 3 Card--Thunderbolt 3 Cable--Thunderbolt 3 computer
Maximum performance will be twice as fast compared with the Thunderbolt 2 Editions (1350MB/s-->2700MB/s).
